HRC 2 is the minimum level of protection required to comply with NFPA 70E and protect yourself from even the most minor ARC flashes. Always perform an appropriate Hazard Risk Assessment to determine the appropriate HRC level for your job. This is typically done by the employer, but we recommend all employees be aware of the danger they are in. See our Arc flash video page to see for yourself.
